This trip will take you deep into one of eastern Europe’s most stunning mountain ranges: the Rila mountains. Since the range is not widely known for its ice climbing, you will not have to worry about crowds during this trip. Instead, you will get to enjoy a peaceful experience that will make you feel as if you are in the center of an amazing icy world created just for you.
There are several different options you can choose from on this trip. The various ice falls fall into an array of different difficulty levels, from WI2 to WI6. There is also a variety of terrains as well, including ice columns, cascades and multi-pitch climbs going as high as 100 meters. Thus making this trip perfect for people of all climbing levels, beginners and experts alike. Moreover, throughout the trip, you will get to enjoy amazing views of the Skakavitza valley.
Along with the enjoyment factor of this trip, I will also help you improve your skills. We will focus on everything from using crampons and ice axes to screw placing and belaying.
